I know many of you have appointments, errands, kid activities, etc., but for just once, try and take at LEAST 30 minutes this weekend to be by yourself. SIT. REFLECT. RELAX!! TIPS TO OPTIMIZE YOUR SUCCESS WITH RELAXTION: 1. Adopt a passive attitude. Approach relaxation with a "let it be" perspective. Don't try to make anything happen. 2.
